Snow again!

Woke up this morning to another inch of snow. I thought it had all gone! apparently DH was saying that we are due more this week. I'm trying to be positive about it- it means we can go take more Christmas card photos. :)
DH set the fire up this morning and moved a couch into the front room even though we're decorating. He left strict instructions that I was to sit in here where it's warm. I haven't put up too much of an argument if I'm honest. even the craft room can't tempt me away from the fire at the minute.

Anyway. I haven't posted for a while. I've just been so busy.
Yesterday I went to the local library to pick up a copy of Tilda's sew pretty home style and they had a sale on. After routing around a little I found this book-
This is the same book that my mam bought for us when our grandad passed away. It was a lot of years ago now and she had since gotten rid of the book. My sisters and I talk about it every now and then. For all the pictures are a bit cringe worthy it is really a very good book for a younger child. it takes you through everything, how we breath, speak, sneeze, growing up, maturing, reproducing and what happens when we die (in the physical sense and not the spiritual). It explains that adults can cry too and they cry at loss because they are sad they won't see the person any more.
Anyway for 10p I had to buy it. It doesn't take up much room on the book shelf and I figure if my sisters or I ever have babies we'll be able to use it.
It turns out that the youngest of us may never use it. She found that the pictures scared her and she's a bit spooked by the whole thing. i suppose I can see her point- it does show a woman with her legs spread and a babies head protruding from between. Oh and the woman has a HUGE smile on her face. it's not a photo though- just a sketch.

Anyway. after going to see said sister it turns out she'd bought me a present. Tilda's sew pretty home style! coincidence. So now I have to take the borrowed copy back. It put a smile on my face though :)

in other news.......... lol Loolla started an agility class last week. We've just had her second session. She's loving it! running and jumping and socialising with the other dogs! it's got her all tired out :)
On to some crafting!
I've been making cards in the last week. here's some of them-
























This one is my first attempt at using a digital stamp. I used a free one I found online. This is going to be my sisters boyfriends card. i think the dragons are cute as a button!
